Donegal Racing News: McAteer on the double at Dundalk

Luke McAteer

Luke McAteer rode the final winner of the afternoon at Dundalk on Wednesday where he partnered the James McAuley-trained Farnese to a surprise success in the 7f handicap. The 33/1 chance was never far off the pace and was always holding 4/1 joint-favourite Foreign Legion, which returned to the track to win on Friday evening, to score by a length.
At the same course on Friday evening, McAteer rode his second winner of the week on the Kevin Coleman-trained Queens Carriage which scored a taking three and a quarter-length win in the opening two-year-old conditions’ race. He brought the 100/30 chance home nicely clear of the Tracey Collins-trained Livingston Range to record his 39th career success.
